The French Vaisselier Reveal

I shared some photos of the details of this French vaisselier in a separate post so this post wouldn't be too awfully long. I know y'all are wanting to see it in my home and how I decorated it and I want you to see it, too. I have been wanting to find a piece like this for my sitting room and they were always either way over what I could afford or I would wait and go back to the antique mall and the piece would be gone. Well, finally it all worked out and this is the piece that was meant to be. 


ta da

This was okay for many years, but I sure love the new piece a whole lot more.



The blacksmith sign did not even have to be moved. It is on the wall. I know it looks like it is resting on the vaisselier. I had a time trying to figure out what to put on top, but think this is good.

I basically used a lot of what I had in the old bookcase since I did collect all these things for this room.





I shared the story of this photo here.











There was no light on this side of the room so I grabbed this antique brass lamp from the foyer and I love it in here.

I first had this little dog next to the trophy.

Then I decided to use my old clock and I love hearing it tick.





Night time.

Pictures really don't do this justice. I wish you could stand in the room and see it. Mr. Savvy and I occasionally walk in here just to look at it.

Have a super week.

  6. That is such a beautiful piece, Kim! It is absolutely a showpiece and I love it. I am glad you found it. I loved your other shelving unit, too, but this one is much "richer" looking in the room. Now grab a cuppa coffee and go stare at it some more- xo Diana

  21. You are so right, pictures do not do it justice...it is so "magnifique" in person!!...but then again, if I had not been fortunate enough to see this in person, the photos you took are stunning....I think if that piece were in my home, I would also walk by it all day long admiring it, passing my hand over that gorgeous wood....I know that this vaisselier was meant to be in your room...and the beautiful little girl "Eclair" so proudly approves!

    ReplyDelete

  26. That is a stunning piece, Kim! I just love it and it fits that spot perfectly. I don't blame you for just going in there and looking at it ~ I would, too! I love how the fabric back works so well with what you have going on in this room, too.

    ReplyDelete
  27. oh, Kim, it is FABULOUS! I'm so glad it worked out for you as it is perfect in that spot, and looks amazing with your treasures on it. So glad you're not planning to paint it. I love that room you have it in, and the English Country vibe going on in there. It may just be my favorite room of yours. Of course, there's the sunroom, the dining room, oh and your bedrooms. Nope, can't pick a favorite =)

  29. Kim.... that is stunning. I can see why you wanted that for that spot, changes the whole look - you know your stuff! Maybe I can't pronounce the proper way to say what that piece is, but I know how to say beautiful.

  32. It is truly perfect for your room, Kim. It has 'weight' and just the right amount of patina - anything too delicate or 'dressy' would have been wrong. This looks like it's always been there. Perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just beautiful. I think I might sit and stare at it all day too :) You have styled it perfectly!

    ReplyDelete

  56. Oh Kim, it truly is GORGEOUS!!! I want to sit here and just look at it. Right now they are installing the carpet runner on our steps and I am hating it right now and don't even want to look at it. I am hoping I grow to like it but right now I could burst into tears. Sounds pretty stupid, huh. I would stand there all day and look at your new piece, it is PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!! XO, Pinky

  73. It is gorgeous, Kim. So rich and elegant looking. You can't beat the beauty of solid and quality wood like that piece.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Kim-Your piece is absolutely gorgeous. I could tell by the hints that it was going to be one of these french antique pieces. My friend has one similar to yours, a dessert server, and just bought a beautiful mantel, all french antiques. And I agree with you, these are not pieces you paint. Thanks for sharing, I just love your home. Blessings Paula

  77. That piece is stunning. I want to run my hands over it, but that sounds a little weird. It just seems like it would have a great patina and warmth to it. She's a keeper for sure!

  78. Wow, what a beautiful room! I love the books, the dog statues, and the trophies and bowls all intertwined! I also love the hanging sign and the riding hat! Perfect finishing touches!... Donna

  81. I do not have to tell you, but this is one of the prettiest pieces I have seen in a very long time. I would not have known the name, but whatever beautiful is in french is what I would have called it. I can't imagine a more perfect piece, and I totally understand why you would walk in and just gaze upon it. LOL By the way, did you add the wallpaper in the back. If so, perfect pattern. It is displayed to perfection. Lucky, lucky you!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Beautiful Kim! It's the perfect piece for your gorgeous home!!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I saw your preview on Facebook and I couldn't wait to see it in your house. This truly is and exceptional piece of furniture. I'm so glad you aren't going to paint it!! I think it would scream in pain! Isn't it wonderful when you wait and wait and then the perfect thing comes along...the fact your husband loves it makes it all that much better. I just love it!

    I thought of you Saturday. We have a new shop here and everything is either antique or new from England...I hope to get some pictures at their open house this weekend.

  96. Isn't it amazing how a French piece can elevate the room to new heights? I love it, Kim. I think the antique lamp is perfectly at home here.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Hi Kim, that piece absolutely took my breath away from the first picture. You must be so happy with it. Is that fabric on the back? Did you do that? Or was it already there? I love how you styled it. I just love everything about it. The original piece was lovely, but you hit it out of the park with this one. Well done!
